Australia

The prospect of shipping to Australia can be a little daunting for those unfamiliar with how it all works. Not only is Australia almost 9,500 miles away from British shores, but it’s also the world’s sixth-largest country by land mass. That’s an awful lot of room for a problem to rear its head if it’s sent in the wrong hands.

Luckily, here at Parcel2Go we work hard to ensure that delivering to Australia is just as easy as delivering within the UK. Thanks to our long-standing relationships with reputed courier services — which include UPS, DHL and TNT Express — we are able to negotiate cheap parcels to Australia for you, all the while ensuring that your packages are in the finest hands. 

Wherever in Australia you’re sending your parcel — from Perth and Sydney, to Melbourne and Brisbane — you’ll get it there cheapest with Parcel2Go. All you need to do is fill out our online quote form above. Throw that on your barby.

What else do you need to know...

Do I need to deal with customs when sending from the UK to Australia?

Since Australia lies outside of the EU, you’ll be required to supply documentation for customs and import tax before shipping from the UK. 

Luckily, we’ve made it as easy as possible to ensure your goods are properly documented. Once your booking is complete, we’ll send you over all the correct forms you need to fill in to take that weight off your mind. Easy!

How much does it cost to send a parcel from the UK to Australia?

Postage to Australia costs as little as £12.19 when you book through Parcel2Go. And with plenty of options on all our services — including protection cover, signature tracking, and drop-off delivery — you can customise your order to suit you down to a tee when posting to Australia, or anywhere else for that matter.

How should I address my parcel for delivery to Australia?

By and large, Australia uses the same address system as the UK, so it should be fairly straightforward to address your package. Remember to put the state abbreviation (for example, “NSW” for New South Wales) on the same line as the town and the postcode, written between the two.

For a more detailed breakdown of everything you need to know when addressing to Australia, you can check out this useful addressing guide put together by the Universal Postal Union.

What items can I send?

Australia is famed for its strict customs standards, because of their efforts to preserve their wildlife. As such, prohibited items to the country include:

  • Soil of whatever quantity
  • Plants and plant matter
  • Articles of leather, including saddlery
  • Cardboard boxes that have previously been used to carry fruit, vegetables, or meat that could contain harmful organisms

For any additional information on what can be sent to Australia, check with the Australian customs authority. You should also check out our prohibited items page for items that our couriers can’t legally handle.
